Charlotte Diocese to release names of accused priests
HEAR MY COMMENTS TONIGHT ON TV NEWS
The Charlotte Diocese announced today that it will publish a list of credibly accused priests by the end of the year.
The major local networks contacted me as soon as the news was released. I’ll be on WCCB, WCNC and WBTV news starting at 5 this evening to comment on these developments.
This release of names is long overdue, although there is no reason for the Charlotte Diocese to delay the release until the end of 2019.
Also, the credibility of the list will remain in doubt until the Charlotte Diocese’s files regarding these priests can be reviewed by a completely independent board.
